Once again sever thunderstorms with damaging hail and possible tornadoes in the vicinity of lower Mississippi river from Cairo Illinois south to nearly the gulf. Big late snow potentials arching from the central Rockies to the upper High Plains and edge of upper Midwest, or so it seems by map prognostications.


Storms late this afternoon are forming more near the lows core.  Rapidly moving storms near Kansas City area and other points east of there and numerous tornado warnings at 5pm in southern Iowa.  New tornado watch at this moment from southern Iowa, northern Missouri to west central Illinois.  These are “low top” supercells, so the actual tornadoes will likely be EF-0 to 1.

Flood potential increasing towards lower Ohio River valley, over large areas currently west of there, near 3 inches and counting.
